Jobs Impulse Neiry

CTO (Moscow)

Impulse Neiry is a software and hardware startup created to boost humankind evolution through developing and distributing brain-computer interfaces (BCI).
BCI is a tool to exchange information directly from brainwaves to a computer, without any external input/output devices (for example, fingers and keyboard or vocal cords and Alexa).
Let’s say, the user just thinks about an action, and the computer performs it. Elon Musk’s Neuralink does pretty much the same, however, they focus on invasive electrodes, surgically inserted into the brain. As for now, we are looking into non-invasive electrodes, the ones that are placed on a person’s head.
Our team has proven the technology functionality by developing the first device with its own software. The device is a market leader, according to its price-performance ratio, and it is being sold successfully.
Moreover, we conducted a range of cognitive studies, published a number of scientific articles, and obtained sufficient funds to develop our products.
